(Pleasant Grove-AP) -- It's not so easy to get to Pleasant Grove and Lindon and city leaders want to change that.

The cities want to add additional roads that will expand the versatility of the Interstate-15 interchange.

Lindon officials want 10-acres of land to build a three-lane road that would extend into the city and connect State Street. Pleasant Grove is planning a road that will turn north and connect with State Street at 2000 West.

But neither city can build until they buy the land, and right now they don't have enough money.

So the cities are negotiating with property owners to build now and pay later with money collected from impact fees as development occurs.

City leaders not only hope the roads will ease congestion, but that they will lure new business to the surrounding areas.
